Suspense, emotion, and intrigue
This is the first 'long-story' I've listened to by Lisa Gardner. My first experience was a short story which I did not like at all. I only listened to this novel because I had already purchased it. Boy, am I thankful I did. This book is filled with suspense and intrigue combined with huge doses of many emotions. I've already bought additional novels by Ms. Gardner because I enjoyed this one so much.
The fact that it is unpredictable.
I thought that the reader for this book was incredible. She made the story even more interesting.
I think I like the parts when Charlie is working as the 911 disbatch officer. It made her seem real and caring
The book made me tense. Like I wanted to get in there and help her.
This book was an unexpected surprise with a phenomenal reader. I am not sure what made me choose it but I am glad that I did.
Love audio books and Audible. I like not having to stop a story because I've got to do the dishes, drive, etc. I confess, I am an addict.
This was my first Lisa Gardner book and I loved it. Boston PD Det. D.D.Warren is a great character. I immediately came back and got the rest of the series, starting with Alone. I'm looking forward to many happy hours of listening. Kirsten Potter is fantastic, as usual. She's quickly becoming one of my favorite narrators.
Yes never a dull moment, doesn't loose my attention at all through the entire book.
No other I've listen to compares.
Very good emotions excellent!
Love her books my very favorite so far.
An ingenious plot
Charlie was the most interesting and the most complex.
This is a masterpiece of bringing all the loose ends together, just when you thought that would be impossible.
This book had little character development, and the narrator wasn't much better. Would request a refund if possible.
Something about serial killer(s)
The same person who read one of the Jack Reacher novels I just listened to.
This is a classic case of a complex plot which cannot be sustained to a credible ending. The story was always interesting, and brought together interesting and current themes such as child abuse, Münchausen syndrome by proxy, paedophilia in younger adults and memory loss in children as a defence against abuse. This contained within a fast moving and well developed set of plotting.Yet the ending was so unrealistic and unbelievable, my enjoyment of the whole book was in the end tainted by cringing for the last hour or so.
I have listened to four or five of Lisa Garner's books. Whilst she has pushed the barrier of credibility before, I have always been able to accept the ending. This one I have not. I will try others, but I will be reluctant to do so without having read the reviews carefully.
An excellent reader who kept the story moving forward. I doubt I would have read the story to the end had I been reading the book.
Not a chance
You'll never guess
She did a fine job
I was in shock
This book was the most suspense I have come upon in quite a while. I felt a real connection with Charlie, believing hr most of the time. Suspecting her a few times also. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good mystery with surprises. Suspense from beginning to end.
The narration was pitch perfect. Kirsten Potter portrayed the characters realistically. I had no problem distinguishing the different voices.
The story catches the reader immediately with the question. Who was this girl? What's going to happen to her? The story is told from the viewpoint of a young woman whose best friends have been murdered on the twenty-first of January one year apart, and the cop she approaches to catch her killer because she believes she will be next. The suspense builds and you can't stop listening until the explosive ending.
Kirsten has the listener completely involved in the story. She brings the characters alive.
I cared about the characters and became involved in the building tension. The ending was satisfying and answered the questions that the first chapter asked.
I loved this book.
I enjoyed this book very much. It had great twists and turns, and many unforseen events. I would recommend this book to someone that enjoys drama, crime dectective stories, etc.
